Cutty Sark: named after an enchantress in Robert Burns’ poem ‘Tam O’Shanter’ – a ‘sark’ is a chemise which, being ‘cutty’ or short, doesn’t cover much’
‘There was no risk of a mistress engaged in some high-spirited Gloucestershire cheese-rolling having to knock on the door and ask a reigning Queen for her cheese back’
